“Perfect Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We had a great stay at this hotel. It was very clean, convenient, nicely decorated, and the staff were all friendly and most helpful. All of questions and requests were efficiently and happily accomodated. The complimentary continental breakfast was good, albeit not over the top.

My furniture, other belongings, and I found ourselves separated in the course of a move from Sacramento to Seattle. Having to stay at a motel for a week left me in less than the best mood. I was truly cranky. I picked Larkspur Landing because of its convenient location with ready access to diverse cafes and restaurants. When I entered the lobby, I was greeted most warmly by someone at the desk who politely asked the purpose of my stay and proceeded to ask how the hotel might help make it a pleasant one. Among the amenities, I felt the hot tub was perfect for a positive mood change. The room was straightforward and comfortable in every way. The hot breakfasts were just fine consisting of many healthy choices. But, again, it was the staff that willingly responded to every need and request. There was almost a "family" feeling. The pictures on the wall depicted nature scenes and some were captioned with the thoughts of famous naturalists. The ambiance was possibly the best I ever experienced. I enjoyed my originally reluctant stay to the point that I was actually sad to leave.

Room Tip: Just ask for the kind of room you find most satisfactory and, if available, you will have it. No ga...

First time at Larkspur Landing, but hopeful because of the strongly positive ratings. Well, it's ok, but "the top hotel in Sacramento" is a bit exaggerated. The room was comfortable, clean, a bit strange to enter through the kitchenette. ( Bathroom is off the kitchenette) Hotel seems to be popular among state highway and telcom workers: a good number of work trucks in the parking lot. These folks tend to rise early. This leads to the primary complaint about Larkspur Landing: minimal sound-proofing and poor door returns. The soundproofing doesn't extend around the doors and they slam if you just open them and leave. In fairness, we arrived late and were very tired. The staff were friendly and the hotel is what its parent site says, a solid 3 star. Just don't go expecting something very special, like "the top hotel in Sacramento."

I really enjoy my stay in this hotel, the rooms are big, beds are comfortable, they cleaned it very well everyday. We had a small kitchen with refrigerator in my room, which was good for one side but a bit noisy for the other, the refrigerator was old and made a lot of noise all night long, that would be the only downside.
They have free cookies, coffee and hot chocolate all day long. Loved it!
Very good location we went walking to eat, several options near by. Friendly and polite staff!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Larkspur. We feel the value is very good. The staff is attentive, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is better than most. The cookies are great. We'll stay here again.

The fluffiest, softest towels! And a very nice breakfast, though it gets crowded at times. The folks at reception were super-friendly and very helpful. (Shout out to Josiah!) As for the room, it was just a room with a larger-than-necessary kitchen area that reduced the sleeping area. Bathroom was comfortable. Big flat TV on the wall. Free movie library at the front desk. Tea/coffee/fruit in the lobby 24/7.

We stayed at the Larkspur for three days over Christmas and it we got a great deal. We liked having the full fridge. They were sold out of king rooms, so we stayed in a Queen Suite. The bed was comfortable, but it had some sort of down cover on the mattress that was four or five inches narrower on both sides, so the Queen bed ended up being more like a small double bed and was extremely narrow for two of us to sleep in. We didn't sleep very well and opted to go to a different hotel chain for the next three days of our stay because of the small beds.

The hotel was very clean though and the breakfast was good and included in the price. There were lots of options. The staff were very friendly and accomodating.

After staying, I was surprised to hear it was rated number 1 in Sacramento. It was decent and a good value, but really nothing special.

Room Tip: Get a king suite, so you don't end up with a double bed.
